As a collaborative partner in the innovation ecosystem, OCE would like to share with your members a unique funding opportunity to help accelerate Canadian Smart City solutions in a Post-Covid19 world through connectivity, smart infrastructure and mobility-based technologies through our Smart City Challenge.
Smart Cities are unlocking the future of data and connectivity across Ontario, creating enormous potential for the development and adoption of new urban technologies. The OCE Smart City Challenge supports Ontario based SMEs who use connectivity in their product or service.
The OCE Smart City initiative is part of the ENCQOR 5G program that is focused on advancing Ontario companies and making them more competitive globally.
The program is open to all eligible companies, including those involved in agriculture, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, media, cybersecurity or those with a focus on northern or remote communities. Additional information is available at https://oce-ontario.org/programs/what's-new/smart-city .
Should you have any questions on the initiative I would be happy to connect with you. We hope that you will share this Challenge opportunity with your membership to support the development and adoption of their new technologies. The application deadline is September 10, 2020.
If you or your members have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
